DEDICA TION 






Mr, George Feiker, Guidance Counselor at 
Williamsburg High School for three years, has 
unselfishly devoted his time helping students 
in choosing their courses and working out 
satisfactory schedules. His help has been 
imperative to all students planning to enter 
schools of higher learning. In appreciation for 
his untiring efforts, we, the class of 1965, 
proudly dedicate this year's Tattler to him.

Young people from five communities -- Chester- 
field, Cummington, Goshen, Westhampton, and 
Williamsburg -- make up the student body of 
Williamsburg High School. Although it is a small 
semi -rural school, Williamsburg High School, 
through the cooperation of these towns, has been 
able to attain the highest academic standards. 

Citizens of all five communities contribute in 
many ways to the success of Williamsburg 
students. Organizations such as Parent -Teacher 
associations, Women's Clubs, and the Rotary 
award scholarships each year to deserving mem- 
bers of the graduating class; many of the volumes 
in our school library have been given by local 
residents; area businessmen display posters 
which announce school events and advertise in 
our yearbook. Enthusiastic parents and friends 
are often spectators at our plays, sports events, 
and graduation exercises . 

The interest of the area townspeople expresses 
their confidence in the students of Williamsburg 
High School. The class of 1965 leaves with the 
hope that this confidence has been rewarded by 
our achievements during the past four years.

CLASS HISTORY 



The time has come when all of us in the Senior Class can pause and think back on 
the four years we have spent in Williamsburg High School. For some of us they were 
happy, fun -filled years, and for others they were years filled with many hours of hard 
work. There were good times and bad times, but through our many experiences we 
have become better and more mature citizens. This fact alone makes these years a 
very important and worthwhile period in our lives. 

On the first day of high school in September 1961, there were eighty -seven enthu- 
siastic but fearful freshmen who passed through the doors for the first time. We didn't 
know what to expect. We will always remember the freshman reception held in our 
honor by the seniors as one of the best times we had all through our four years. After 
a few weeks of getting acquainted with our fellow classmates we elected the following 
class officers: Martha Burr, president; Judy Larkin, vice-president; Lavinia DeNood, 
secretary; Mike Houle, treasurer; and Dale Howes, historian. 

Returning the following September we felt a little more secure in that we had one 
year of experience. We held two successful dances that year and we were getting into 
the swing of things. It really wasn't so bad, this thing called high school. That year 
we elected Dave Robb, president; Mike Houle, vice-president; Lavinia DeNood, secre- 
tary; Sue Arcouette, treasurer; and Ginger Brooks, historian. 

Our junior year was perhaps our best year. Although our class isn't a class with 
many scholars we have learned to work together as a team. Our Junior Prom was the 
most successful one ever held in the history of Williamsburg High. Through this Prom 
we learned teamwork; we took pride in our work. Getting along with people is a great 
asset, valuable all through life. Also in our junior year we received our class rings. 
These rings will serve as remembrances of high school for many years. We again 
selected Dave Robb president, and Mike Houle vice-president. Judy Larkin was elected 
secretary; Ted Lloyd, treasurer; and Sally Howes, historian. 

Our senior year we finally got our reward and became the gentle persecutors of the 
freshmen. After a heated campaign we elected Dave Robb and Mike Houle for the third 
time. Kathy Moynahan was elected secretary; Elaine Sears, treasurer; and Harry Pegg, 
historian. 

Now as our four years draw to an end we can look back, and in so doing realize that 
high school is the turning point in our lives. We entered as children, and came out 
adults; although we have to be reminded of it occasionally. Only time will reveal our 
true debt to Williamsburg High School and our success in repaying that debt.

OUR PROM 




On May 29, 1964, our class sponsored the annual Junior Prom; from 
all aspects it was one of the most successful Proms ever held at Williams 
burg High School. The theme was "Song of the South." Almost sixty cou- 
ples attended and because of this a good-sized profit was made. All en- 
joyed the unique refreshments and southern atmosphere. Our class will 
always remember all the fun we had working on the 1964 Junior Prom.

A fine yearbook is the product of genuine interest and hard work. Each page is the 
result of careful planning and replanning. Much thought is given to layout, photograph 
and typing. It is through the co-operation of many people that these factors are in- 
tegrated in the finished book. The TATTLER staff wishes to thank all those who have 
given so freely of their time and effort to make this year's edition a success.

We are proud that our school is well 
balanced in its activities as is shown by 
the number of students who have received 
scholastic recognition. Much credit should 
be given to the library aides whose efforts 
to maintain an efficient library have en- 
abled these people to attain scholastic hon- 
ors . Credit should also be extended to those 
who have participated in "As Schools Match 
Wits, " a television program in which prom- 
ising students from our school have taken 
part for the last two years . In addition four 
people have qualified in the National Merit 
Scholarship Program. We should be espe- 
cially proud of this for rarely does a school 
of our size have as many recipients of this 
award .

Although putting on a play may seem 
very easy, there is much more to it than 
meets the eye, as the members of the 
Dramatics Club can testify. 

One of the important jobs is that of 
handling publicity, which includes such 
things as making posters, advertising, 
and ticket selling. Without the business 
staff there would be no play, for although 
a play may be very good, without an audi- 
ence, it is nothing. 

Most plays require properties and 
costumes which are supplied by a prop 
committee, a group of imaginative stu- 
dents who manage every year to make 
every production complete and attractive. 
Besides accumulating the props they must 
also arrange the set quickly between acts 
- - a task that is especially difficult when 
windows fall, sofas collapse, and various 
other tragedies occur. 

Another important aspect of dramatics 
is make-up. In recent years our make-up 
committees have been experimenting very 
effectively with professional make-up. 
However their most difficult task has been 
to convince amateur actors that they look 
good with pounds of goo on their faces . 

Plays are produced successfully by the 
creative efforts of many people, actors as 
well as those behind the scenes, working 
together to provide a few hours of enter- 
tainment for many.

The 1964 Cross -Country Team performed well against stiff competition from 
larger schools in the Northern Division of the Western Massachusetts Cross- 
country League. The team compiled a two and five won and loss record placing 
them sixth in the final League standings . 

Bill Graves, Warren Messeck, Pete Gorham, and Brian Blackmer, Williams- 
burg's "Four Freshmen, " turned in consistent performances. Their steady im- 
provement provided much hope for the future success of Williamsburg Cross- 
country . 

The highlight of the season was the Second Annual Regional Cross -Country 
Meet at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Warren Messeck finished 
nineteenth in a field of one hundred five. The team turned in a respectable per- 
formance at this Regional, finishing ninth among the sixteen competing schools . 

Interest in Cross -Country has greatly increased among our newcomers to 
help make the 1965 season somewhat brighter.

Wayne Beebe, Alfred Cone, and Alan 
Golash were honored for having sold the 
greatest number of tickets. 




The Fun Night was held to benefit the 
Edward C. Foster and the Sanderson-Heath

Earl Tonet, George Childs, Norman Graves, Richard Graves, and 
Robert Branch served on the original Citizens Committee. Absent: 
Joe Soltys. Deceased: Leon McKusick. 



r i 




Mrs. Norman Graves has been chair- 
man of the Citizens Committee for the 
past fifteen years. 



The first annual Basketball 
Banquet, which took place in 195 
at the Williamsburg Congrega- 
tional Church, was held by an 
interested group of citizens to 
honor the boys' basketball team 
This Citizens Committee con- 
sisted of Mrs. Norman Graves, 
chairman; Robert Branch; Georg 
Childs; Norman Graves; Richarc 
Graves; Joe Soltys; Earl Tonet, 
and the late Leon McKusick. Tommy Eck, a coach 
at the University of Massachusetts was guest speaker 
Mr. Branch served as master of ceremonies. 

In recent years the Basketball Banquet has had the 
support of many people. Local women whose children 
participate in basketball have done such things as 
roast turkeys; Mrs. Helen Wells and members of the 
cafeteria staff, with the help of Mr. Frank Vayda, 
have provided valuable assistance in the preparation 
of the meal and the clean-up after it. Many of the 









teachers, parents, and friends of the basketball players attend the banquet to recogniz 
what they have done for their school and their community. 

This year marked the fifteenth anniversary of the Basketball Banquet. Mr. Redding- 
ton was master of ceremonies; the meal was served in the Anne T. Dunphy cafeteria. 
Eight members of the class of 1965 were honored for the good sportsmanship and 
school spirit they have shown at Williamsburg High School.

BANQUET 



1965 



• • • 




Mr. Francis Reddington, superintendent of schools, 
served as master of ceremonies. 




Senior girls honored this year were Marjorie Beebe, Mi- 
lenna McCoy, Deborah Hathaway, and Sally Howes. 





Bill Graves, Rob Otis, and Dave Mathers were rec- 
ognized for excellence in foul shooting. Their names 
will be inscribed on the W. Malcolm Heath Memo- 
rial Plaque. 



Senior boys honored this year were Edward Lloyd, Mi- 
chael Houle, Robert Bushee, and David Mathers.

SOFTBALL 




FIRST ROW: Carla Swanda, Sue Healy, Sue Otis, Sally Howes, Eileen Gromelski, Kris Healy, Captain- 
Nancy Memtt, Jean Batura, Linda Kellogg, Peggy Clark. SECOND ROW: Kathy Moran, Manager- Linda 
Stone, Jams Donovan, Gloria Bushee, Michelle Reddington, Dottie Sylvester, Madeline Breen, Shirley Lii 
tainen, Helen Fogg, Pam Donovan; Sydney Williston, and Jane Parsons, Managers. 



The 1964 softball team had a very successful season winning six out of eight games 
-- losing only to Sanderson and Northampton, each by one run. The pitching of Helen 
Fogg, Sue Healy, and Sally Howes, combined with the catching of Kris Healy, a strong 
backfield, and good hitting, contributed to a fine team performance . 

Through graduation we lost not only Kris Healy and Helen Fogg, but also Shirley 
Liimatainen and Linda Kellogg, who excelled in fielding and hitting. However, this 
year's team feels that under the guidance and encouragement of Mrs. Kmit, plus a 
strong team effort, the 1965 season will be fully as successful as that of last spring.
